Samsung YP-Z5 has locked up while playing. Cannot exit, or change, or shut it down

This is the same problem I have! Try cleaning the resistive touch-pad (located under the sticker in the center) and the ribbon wire connecting it (green and flat with 4 strips of metal in it) with a bit of Windex or rubbing alcohol. The pad has various wires of different resistances in it and when certain groups are connected (touched) their resistance combines. For this to actually work, the pad has to be super clean and free of any corrosion.

This picture shows the buttons and the ribbon wire:

The pad is under the sticker with the arrows on it:

Samsung YP-Z5 can't scroll

This is a common problem with these players. It is a hardware fault with the touch panel. It is probably why they were replaced with new models very quickly afterwards. The touch panel is a complete unit added to the device.

If you can get hold of a faulty unit on e-bay (with a working touchpad) you can easily replace the the touchpad without damaging any part of the mp3 player as it easily unscrews.

Samsung YP-Z5

From my experience this is a hardware fault with the touchpad. Luckily you can buy a faulty player on ebay and replace the touchpad - make sure the fault on the faulty one is not the same!

The player is is easy to take apart and the touchpad easy to replace.

Samsung yp-z5 scroll panel stopped working.

This is a common hardware fault with this player. I guess it is why the model has been replaced.

The cheapest solution is to buy a faulty player from ebay - around £10 including postage and replace your faulty one. Make sure to check the faulty one does not have the touchpad fault.

It is straightforward to replace the touchpad.

Touchpad not responding

The touchpad problem is a hardware fault. I have bought a couple faulty ones of these with this problem. I bought some other faulty ones from ebay and just replaced the touchpads. It is easy enough to do.

The good thing about the player is it is easy to take apart and replace anything and wont leave it looking like a wreck when you are finished.

Down scroll

Try reseting the player. It might not work all the time, but this was the first time my down scroll ever locked up on me, and the reset button fixed the problem. It might just be a temporary solution, but at least it's something.

Navigation Pad Won't Work

No... the keypad sensors can only be fixed by relacing the actual touch/keypad itself (unless you're a techy, and have access to a service manual???). If this unit was purchased NEW by previous owner less than 12mnths ago, then it is still under Samsung's factory warranty. If so, this repair may be covered under warranty, and parts are actually available ex Korea (if they don't have already). Good luck.

Other way to sync the yp-z5 withought windows media player

Here is the user manual for your player if you need it; Page 18 states that you can only sync with wmp 10, there is no alternative software that will do the job. Hope this helps :)
